Want to set up your own on-line shop or store ?
Scalar Enterprises can now offer an entry level e-commerce solution to our clients who are interested in having an e-commerce web site.
Fully bespoke designed on-line shop solutions can work out quite expensive which can be especially difficult for you when you are just getting your business started. Because of this, we have been working behind the scenes to come up with a lower cost on-line store solution that we can offer to our clients to help get them started with their on-line business.
This on-line shop solution is based on tried and tested open source software, allowing us to keep the costs down as we don’t have to develop it from scratch. It offers a reliable, and powerful on-line shop solution with a wide range of functions and features although some customisation is still possible if required.

What next ?
We can set your on-line shop up for you ready for you to populate it with your products yourself or we can also quote you to do that part for you if you wish. It is very straightforward to do but please remember that adding a lot of products can take quite a bit of time.
Whichever way you choose to do it, you will still need to provide good quality product photographs as well as product descriptions etc. We can put you in touch with photographers if you need them and we also have a web copywriter and marketing specialists who can help you with this if required.
Pricing for each product obviously needs to be included along with packing and shipping costs as well as product dimensions, weights and stock levels so you will also need to prepare all of this information for entry as well. Again you can enter this data yourself or we can quote you to do it for you.
All of the above can be easily entered and managed via the powerful administration interface if you choose to do it yourself (have a look at the screenshot images here for examples of the e-commerce administration tool).
We can also arrange suitable hosting for your e-commerce store if you need it.
